In 2006, ROTA commenced research on the Restoring Relations Project (RRP):
Addressing Hate Crime through Restorative Justice. In April 2008 the RRP released its findings and recommendations.
On March 11th 2009, ROTA launched its Transformative Justice Project with an evening reception at the Equalities and Human Rights Commission. The event had a focus on the 10 year anniversary of the Macpherson Inquiry, with high profile speakers sharing their positions on areas ranging from the value of restorative justice, hate crime in schools to the changing face of institutionalised racism. This will go on to inform the work of ROTA's 4 year Transformative Justice Project
